    The error messages have stopped popping up. I was going to run a scan tonight using McAfee to make sure everything is fine. I will let you know if the scan finds anything, but I think you fixed my computer! Thanks again!

    Hi Broni,

    The virus appears to be gone, however I keep getting an error message not allowing me to use update windows updates. Error code #80096001. Internet explorer is also slower than usual.

    I wasn't able to do that last step with resetting System restore. IT would stay on searching for system restore points. Sorry this took so long I thought I had fixed it.

    Any suggestions?

    In this forum, we make sure, your computer is free of malware and your computer is clean :)
    Because the access to malware forum is very limited, your best option is to create new topic about your current issue, at Windows section.
    You'll get more attention.

    Good luck!
